[iDiots video]

good video -- made me want to finally get a smartphone. Only half-kidding ;-) that whip app was grrrrrreat fun :D
Messes nicely with the apple insignia --
but that takes away from it imo, because it's a universal thing - not just apple.

A classic 1960 animation of Jules Feiffer's tale about bureaucratic cluelessness - and a 4-year old draftee by the name of Munro.

@panzer: Thanks for those links!
I found IDIOTS to be quite a good satirical social commentary. It captured almost exactly my thoughts on the matter - for years I have found such idiocy incomprehensible, but am usually too polite to make comment about it. I had wondered whether others saw it also.
As for Father And Daughter - 2000 Academy Award for Animated Short Film, it was a very good find, I thought. I found it gently, hauntingly, heartbreakingly beautiful - but that's just my perception. Others may perceive something different from it.

Then I became "hooked" as I followed some other interesting videos/films linked/related on the YouTube page, and watched those also:
  • CGI Award-Winning Animated Short Film HD: "Worlds Apart" - by Michael Zachary Huber (9:06mins)
    Quote
    From The CGBros
    Published on 23 Jan 2014
    Watch this fantastic **Multi-Award Winning** CGI Animated sci-fi short film, that tells the story of a young Central California family caught in an unimaginable situation. Told through the eyes of a child's teddy bear, Worlds Apart is part cautionary fairytale and part science fiction thriller. The film has garnered fourteen Best Animation awards from festivals around the globe.
    This version of Worlds Apart features an excellent film score by Chad Seiter. Having worked on films such as The Incredibles and Ratatouille, Chad was the perfect person to undertake the score and orchestration for Worlds Apart. For the final recording Chad assembled some of the most talented musicians in Hollywood, this included artists from the LA Philharmonic.
    This is the third film written, produced, and directed by Michael Zachary Huber.
    To reach Chad and see his full list of credits look here.

    For more information on the film you can contact the director at:

    Ice Planet full movie. SciFi movie, to some maybe the worst movie, but others say: "Hey, its science fiction, so anything is possible". I myself give this movie a 5 (out of 10). Nevertheless, enjoy.
    Also visit www.andrewssuperstore.com
    This is an unsold TV Pilot, that arrived on DVD in 2003

Now I really must get on with something more useful...

I think I have already posted Seed and Worlds Apart here, but I could be wrong ...

Yes, you may well have already posted them in this thread. I can't keep up with all the recommendations here - I rarely watch video, but when I do, I tend to gorge myself. I recall having seen SEED before, but not Worlds Apart.

If you're into music, numbers, geometry, and funky stuff, you'll find this very interesting. Part 2 has some of the coolest stuff.

Interesting.

I wasn't really in the mood for it, so didn't enjoy it much. I need to be in the right frame of mind for those kinds of films.

If it ask for you to log in, then go here instead so you won't have to log in.
All the tricks are nice, but at 1:50 into the vid is one she calls 'flame in your hand'.

That buddy is funny! I've seen a few of his vids. Worth a watch. (But, not for everyone.)

good find Panzer :up:
there's a two hour version (but I might save up that till I'm doing some mindless work).
A problem for me, and probably many others, is that the 'nothing box' has been replaced with the internet, which is about the opposite of nothing.

Re the 'fixing things' approach (when someone tells you their troubles), that's not just a men thing - a lot of women do that too.

And going back to men doing 'nothing' on occasion, and women not understanding it - here's a sketch from Loriot (unfortunately I couldnt find any version with English subtitles) so only accessible if you have a bit of German:



called 'Feierabend' - man home from work, sitting in armchair, woman keeps asking what he's doing/thinking/would-he-not-like-to-go-for-a-walk/or-do-something-fun etc etc till he loses the cool at the end
